hindu had an interesting picture with cycle, children and nature theme. i reproduce it below.

when a nation has malnourished children in tens of thousands and perhaps in tens of millions, focus should be given at grass roots level to improve the situation. call this 'socialism' and i will be glad to accept it. unbridled capitalism which converts politicians into middlemen and cheap brokers is much worse than society based socialism.

the heading on the picture should read as "cycle of fake development". from the figures cited, should i need to tell that development is indeed weak?
(Cycling is a favourite sport of children in rural Kerala. The National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3) in 2005-06 found 46 per cent children aged below 3 years to be underweight against 47 per cent in1996-97. The study also revealed that nearly 4 out of 5 children in the age group of 6 to 35 months had anaemia.)
